How to Remove Just for Men Dye From the Skin

Just for Men is a shampoo-in haircolor that's made by Combe Inc. in White Plains, N.Y. According to the company website, Just for Men colours "only the grey hair, for a natural look," and there are 11 different shades available. When using Just for Men, getting the dye on your skin is inevitable. However, with a few simple procedures, you remove the dye from where it doesn't belong.

Wet a washcloth with warm tap water, then wring it out until it's not dripping wet. Place a few drops of hand soap onto the cloth. Work the soap into a lather. Wash any Just for Men hair dye off your skin with the soapy cloth immediately before it has time to dry and set. Even though the spill is fresh, you may have to rub each area for 20 seconds or so.

Rinse the washed areas of your skin off with tap water. Then, check to see if all of the hair dye is gone. If not, repeat the process.

Remove stubborn stains with hydrogen peroxide. Moisten a cotton ball with a mild solution (2 per cent peroxide by volume) of peroxide. Rub it on the hair dye stains to lighten them. Be especially careful using hydrogen peroxide around your hair as it will lighten it as well.
